- "It was a pleasant evening that night of January 2.
However, this pleasantness would soon be completely
disrupted when The Untitled Show would create
mental anarchy amongst a small group of local
- The evening blasted off with a super noisy, beat
happy set by the soundsystemscheckOK.
soundsystemscheckOK played a set that consisted of
three new songs; A, B, and C. Richard (a.k.a.
SoundSystemsCheckOK), then played a Spice Girls' cover of
"Wannabe". Richard played the keyboards and drum machine,
while his brother Ryne played the bass. Ryne's
performance was excellent considering he had only learned
how to push down strings the night prior to the show.
Richard ended the set by doing a few magic tricks that
astounded the audience, as they all simultaneously said,
"How'd you do that?" But of course a magician never
reveals his secrets, so it was time for The Static
Probe Pioneers to take the "stage".
- Static had an awesome entrance that included a
Bearcat Scanner, flashing television numbers, and Static
Probe Pioneer fake phone calls. This was the prelude to
"I Have the Same First Name as My Bus
Driver". This screaming noise barrage of craziness was
counter attacked by their next song, "Dehydration".
"Dehydration" was one of the greatest songs I have ever
heard. Gregg's beautiful double handed keyboard works
were complimented perfectly by Joe's unique guitar work.
The continued their set until their dinner arrived.
During which time each member of the Static Probe
Pioneers took their shot on the new CS1x Yamaha
Synthesizer, while the other member went to eat some
pizza. After about a half hour of this shaky portion of
the set, they returned to finish off the audience. The
second half of their set included an amazing version of
"The Macrocosm of Insinuating Oneself" and "Oh Well, What
I Hate Calling it the New Song." The second half of the
show really picked up when the Static went into an
almost-improvisational version of "Rich is Dead." As soon
as this was finished, they went into their infamous
freestlye-rap song, "Chattanooga." During this piece, Joe
provide some beats on the Yamaha DD-7 while Gregg rapped
about vitamins. Most thought the show was over after
this, but the Static Probe Pioneers, then, played "Game
Over Man." Gregg got on the guitar for this number, and
the show closed with the blowing out of his amplifier.
This particular concert proved the talents of OOBS with
impeccable performances by both
soundsystemscheckOK and Static Probe
